Wells Fargo has launched a new debit card for students, faculty and staff of Texas A&M University, College Station. The new Aggie Bucks Unlimited Gold Card enables cardholders to access their linked Wells Fargo checking accounts and use their cards anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, either on- or off-campus or via the Internet. The card features Texas A&M crest imagery and the university logo.
“As students’ purchasing patterns and new technologies have evolved, we determined it was time to update our existing Aggie Bucks program and provide our university community with new options and convenience to meet those needs,” said Texas A&M’s CFO Terry Pankratz.
The original Aggie Bucks program, first introduced in the 1980s, was used for dining on campus and was later expanded to include purchases at the campus book store. In 1998, Wells Fargo and Texas A&M teamed up to take the Aggie Bucks program off campus.
“The Aggie Bucks Unlimited Gold Card works just like a standard Wells Fargo Gold Check Card, with all of the same features and benefits,” said Carol Gravis, Wells Fargo Bryan-based Community Banking president. “We’ve already had more than 2,500 people sign up for the debit card.”
The new card also grants users access to Wells Fargo’s extensive ATM network.
Texas A&M students, faculty and staff may request the Aggie Bucks Unlimited Gold Card at any of Wells Fargo’s six banking locations in Bryan/College Station, including one in the General Services Complex on campus. Wells Fargo customers may order the card for existing accounts, while non-customers may order the card when they open a new Wells Fargo checking account.
